Need some help got a trojan

First off sorry if this is in wrong area.
My parents have got a trojan ( Smart internet protection) even tho they was protected using Mcafee internet security. Anyways, when i tried to open mcafee to run a system scan it would not let me. I don't know any thing about what to do, i have bought a nortan internet security protection but it wont even let me install it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
All so i can't even make a back up disc for the computer

Try booting into safe mode, then loading the anti-virus. Sometimes this works...otherwise, make a note of the file path where the virus resides and delete the file in safe mode. Hope this helps.

  • It will quickly run and launch a log. If it does not launch a log, try another download link until it does.
  • Please post its log in your next reply.
  • After it has run successfully, delete RKill.

Please download and run this tool.

  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

I have looked and i can not find where the trojan resides, all so i use f8 and start in safe mode with networking but it wont connect to the internet.
If maybe some one knows where abouts i can look for where it resides, that would be very helpful.

All so thanks for the promp responses so far
